Rotorua Shopping For The Visitor

Rotorua Shopping caters to a variety of interests and needs for a visitor.

What would you like? Souvenirs & Gifts, Supermarkets or Markets maybe? Or are you more interested in Outdoor Clothing & Equipment, whether it's for Running, Biking, Fishing & Hunting etc? And what about Second Hand shopping, some people love that.

For me it's all about saving time. If I know what's available and where it is before I arrive I can be in and out doing what I really want to do.

Souvenir Shopping

It can be fun looking for that perfect souvenir to take home when you're visiting distant shores.

Whether it's for yourself or as a gift for someone else, we have a good selection of souvenir shops to browse through.

From quirky kiwiana gifts, Māori gifts, merino and possum clothing to NZ skincare ranges, you'll more than likely spend a few hours in these stores..

See also the tips for buying souvenirs to remember - bet you never thought about buying them from a grocery store. And then, if you're from overseas, there's also the tip for dealing with our lovely GST (Goods & Services Tax). Believe me, it's an art form within itself.

Rotorua Outdoor Gear Stores

What would Rotorua shopping be like without outdoor gear. We have a great range of outdoor gear stores that cater to the outdoors culture.
What are you into?

Is it camping? Maybe hiking or biking, running or golfing. We get lots of mad keen hunters and fishmen, I know that much. Or maybe you're into something else entirely.

This page features Rotorua's specialist bike shops along with hunting & fishing. I'm sure you will find something of interest if you are into the outdoors in any way. Make sure to check out the page for Rotorua, NZ Outdoor Stores as well.

Rotorua NZ Outdoor Stores

As if the above isn't enough I've added another section to the outdoors. Here you will find the hours, locations and websites for Outdoorsman Headquarters, Kathmandu and Mountain Designs. Two further stores that are more general in an outdoors, sporty way are Rebel Sport and Stirling Sports.

Quite a few of the stores in this and the preceding section crossover with the gear they stock so make sure to check them all out.
